- A Facebook user took a video of a crocodile in Davao City, not on a farm, but on the streets
- One man tried to touch the crocodile but changed his mind
- Many speculated that the crocodile was a pet of a resident in the area, which happened to escape when the waters rose because of strong rains
Davao City is known for its crocodile farms. While seeing a crocodile may have become normal for many of its residents, seeing one swimming a meter away on a flooded street can either scare you or amuse you.
One Facebook user, John Eidderf Abellana, had the chance to be at the right place at the right time when he spotted a dark lurking figure in one flooded street in Davao.

Most of the time, Filipinos don’t get intimidated by a meter of flood water but this time around, you can see that people were steering clear of that particular street.
In the video, the figure of the crocodile is unmistakable.
One bystander tried to approach the crocodile swimming in Davao, and would have attempted to touch the croc, but apparently changed his mind. Who can blame him? Nobody in his right mind would want to touch, much less grab the tail of a perhaps hungry crocodile.
A strong rain flooded the streets of Catalunan Pequeño, Davao City, and many speculated that the lost croc might be the pet of somebody, but was only able to escape because of the height of flood waters.
Although the crocodile was not that huge, it was still enough to give people on the street a real scare.
Rumors abounded that there were some men who tried to capture the crocodile but their efforts failed.
As of this writing, it was not confirmed if the crocodile on the flooded streets of Davao was a pet of a resident in the area.
